    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Apr 8, 2010

    Codebreakers is an interesting story. The first issue may start out somewhat slow, but when the turn occurs, Codebreakers suddenly becomes a race to save the life of a friend and co-worker. The ending creates a serious creepy vibe to the series, but one that I'm looking forward to seeing resolved. My guess is there will be plenty of explosions and the boy making out with the girl by the end, and that's okay, as it makes reading comics feel more like a Saturday afternoon spent at the movies. Codebreakers #1 is yet another good start to a series, earning 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
